Abstract: The Fraction Ball has demonstrated positive impacts on rational number learning. fractions and decimals through basketball. We explored activity features that sparked math talk discussions. We found that 6th graders engaged in minimal math discussions that were mostly preceded by teacher prompting. Future designs might leverage student prior knowledge by incorporating increasingly difficult questions to support peer-led discussions.
